Spring Cleaning


Well, I am on spring break. YAY!!!! It is the one time of year that I can get a ton of things done around the house. While I am pretty handy and love to do things myself, with the time constraints, I decided to forego doing the pressure washing myself and have it done professionally.

I must say... my faith in hard-working men has been renewed. The fellow doing the work arrived promptly at 9:00 this morning and has done an amazing, truly transformative job on the back and side of the house. I can't believe how much mold had grown on the house, concrete walkway, deck and pergola. It was like being in Ireland!

He is taking a much-needed break right now and then will return to do the driveway, porch and front of the house. I can't believe the difference it has made. The house looks like it has been freshly painted. So glad I decided against doing all of it myself.

And I still have a whole week of vacation ahead of me! Woo hoo!

Here are some Before and After pictures:
